I thought this was going to be the typical go find riches flick and people fall in love, but it had a nice bitch twist from the chick in the jungle.

Subject: GREAT DOWNLOAD
The five stars are tri-facto in nature. One, for the movie, two for the quality of the download, and three for providing alternative downloads for people. I love these high GB downloads because I know I’m getting the best possible quality from the source. With Free Download Manager, they are a snap to download, and compression technology programs like Windows DVD maker also love them because they operate on total minutes, not total GB, so a person can make a 5 GB, 90 minute movie, and have it look exactly like the original download using around 2 GB total disc space on a DVD. You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, and low megabyte downloads with other movies are sow’s ears. This is a silk purse download. People who complain about these high megabyte downloads just DON’T GET IT. This is the first review I’ve written, I am so impressed with your download. So a big THANK YOU for making this great movie available!

It wasn't as awful as I thought it was going to be.

Subject: Ah Lippert.
Yes, here he is in all his glory. I think Lippert must have been Roger Corman's idol.

All the below critiques are spot-on: bad dialogue, plot that makes no sense, narration over previously used footage to advance the movie, bad costuming, a scorn for indigenous people... it's all here and it's fantastic!!
Three stars for B-Movie status.

Schlock producer/distributor Robert Lippert strikes again with another sixty-minute audience swindle. New footage of a ridiculous, disjointed story was tacked onto clips from any silent films that happened to be lying around. The acting in the new footage is dismal, but to give the cast its due, most of the dialog is undeliverable with a straight face. “Queen of the Amazons” doesn’t deserve even two stars, but I’m giving it three because this one must be seen to be believed. What the hell. It only takes an hour, and if you had anything better to do, you wouldn’t be reading this review. FOOTNOTE: If you find this movie amusing for any reason, try to find “The White Gorilla” (1945), which features new sound footage of a guy in a white gorilla suit tacked onto scenes from the silent serial “Perils of the Jungle.” (1927). It's available at Netflix, and probably at other sites as well. It almost certainly is in the public domain.

Nothing good to say about this film. It's pure dreck. If you want to see a good movie set in Africa, check out King Solomon's Mines.

I downloaded the mpeg2 file. Video and audio are fine.

The writing is laughable, the acting is horrible, the stock footage endless. But it is entertaining in that so bad it's good way.

It's time to pop some popcorn and grab a couple of brews. You'll have a hoot with this one!

Subject: THE AMAZON QUEEN AND THE MORISON CURSE
The previous reviewer pretty well summed it up. I'll just add that I enjoy old safari movies, mostly because I remember the wonder I felt as a child when I first SAW these strange animals and these far-off places. There were STILL lots of blank places on the map and anything seemed possible. But before even seeing this movie I would have given Zita, the Amazonian Queen a "head's up". "Patricia Morison is coming," I would have said. "Beware! Doom and Death dog her steps!"
******************************************
No, but seriously, I'm just having a little fun at her expense. It IS an odd coincidence that whenever Patricia Morison (who celebrated her 92nd birthday last March) appeared in any long-running and much beloved movie series'---they abruptly ended. In this same year of 1947 she appeared in SONG OF THE THIN MAN---also starring William Powell and Myrna Loy. A HUGELY popular series. They never made another one. In this same year she also appeared in TARZAN AND THE HUNTRESS with Johnny Weismuller. Weismuller never made another Tarzan flick. And just the year before (in '46) she played the villanous Hilda Courtney opposite Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in DRESSED TO KILL. Rathbone and Bruce never made another Sherlock Holmes picture.
COINCIDENCE???
Well, of course it is. But it's an amusing one.

Three stars for Pat.

This was your typical old safari movie. Stiff acting, oomgawa, me Tarzan you Jane type of language for the natives. There were plenty of animal and nature shots as a filler of course. The old somebody went on a safari and hasn't been heard from in months so lets form our own search party and find them routine. Yes, I would most likely watch it again in I was ever in a jungle mood. Three stars was all I could muster for this film but all in all, it wasn't too bad.
